NEW YORE, Sept. 7-Baseball fad of UI old New York are willing to ly dds today that the inetropolis wi soe half af the werld'series. but they have practically given up hope of monopolising the big fall elamics. . Those who root for the Yankees are elad ever the of Miller Bugs battein clan, while among G sfan loom is thicker than mo t Babe Ruth and company will cler capture the American Ltgue pa.ant foree or have it thrust upem them sow seems a certainty. The Yanks are brossag oiong, win n1i here and losing there, but g better than .0 per eat - . Their pitchers are going good and the team has lost none of Its hitting strength. Rough Going Ahead. the world-eamplon Indians, on the otber mitt, have not ahegl of them but rpUgh going that with a crippled pitching staff. titan Cov eleakie Is not at, top form to start the Eastwn read trip. Ray Caldwell is under suspension for beilp out of conditio and Catcher hteve O'Neil, with the brunt of the catching to do. Is not in the best shape either. On top of this tIh Indians must swing around the eastern half of the .eiuit once again ad will be trea to play all but tWo of their remaining twenty-thrte games on the read. The Tigep play In Cleveland today an4 tomorrow and then its god-by to Dunn Field for the rest of .t, Moedule.

The Giants. apparently have shot their bolt. The fine rally they made by winning five straight games from Pittsburgh is forgotten no*, and as MGeraw prepares to lead his men westward to finish the season on the road, there Is little hope that Pitts burgh can be headed. "Even though there is a margin of only a game and a half between Ihe teams. The gap in the Amnerican league standing between the Indians, and Yanks is now but half a game n width." McGraw's pitching staff is en the -agged edge, too. Douglas is out of .ndition. Barnes has flopped and Toney is showing signs of blowing up. Young Ryan is lucky any time e goes the ful route and whea the )to'ers are webbly the Giants have thout as much morale as an oyster. so It looks like the Pirates and :he Tanks to Gotham, despite the Aloseaes of the rmies today. hARVARD CANDIDATE DROPS AFTER STUNT CAMMMM Sept. 7.-Harvard's first dY of football brought out eightytbt candidates, who worhed f- r two hours under a brIlliant sun. nMiderable weight was dropped, e&I *.I aly by the big fellows.

This fall. in addition to most of the men associated with Fisher a year ag. the head coach has obtained the services of efift Mahan, captain at Harvard sIX yeam age, and also those of four members of last year's team. Mahan, who did a little coaching on the coast in 1916, is now in business is Boston, and he will be in charge of the running bas all fall. Bradlee, who has been ceaching the backs for the last two qsasons. will again do some work, but Mahan will have charge of the department.
